I was all unhappy and pissy yesterday because I couldn’t crochet so The Captain forced me to leave the house and go walk around at a gigantic Antique Mall in Plano.  First we had lunch in their tea room with a bunch of 90-year-olds (we fit right in).  It was good but WAY over-priced just like most of the “antiques.”  It was nice to get out of the house for a while.  This is the only thing I bought:


Another Birdcage

Most of the birdcages I have are on top of my kitchen cabinets with some greenery in them.  A couple of them have a crochet bird inside.  I can’t resist a decorative birdcage.  Here are a few of them I already own.

I thought I might sneak a little crochet in today and make a little birdie for the new cage.   I’m also contemplating taking those purple & yellow squares apart and sending them to Sarah London for the Crochet a Rainbow project.  In fact, I’m pretty sure that’s what I’m going to do.  I’d rather spend my time making something I love than something I don’t.  And speaking of those squares, someone wanted to know what the variegated yarn was I used on that last joining round.  It’s Hobby Lobby’s ILTY in Jazzed Stripe.

It’s going to be 71 degrees today and it’s all sunshine and blue skies as far as the eye can see.  The dogs are happy that I have the back door standing open so they can come and go.  Fletcher especially loves being outside.  I took these pictures a few minutes ago while he and Eli were playing tug-of-war.



I wish I had their energy!

Have a Happy Friday
